Well bro, it's just about the same as converting a YJ to coils or coilovers. Leaf springs are only going to take you so far (Don't let Hackle hear you say that because his mule flexed out pretty hard when he had leafs all around.)
You would have to fab up control arms, mounts, spring pads etc....or maybe some sort of a 1/4 elyptical setup with a ladder
bar. I don't believe I have ever seen a specific kit out there for CJ's, but you can use pieces from other kits to make it work. Some guys will do this to their CJ's when they get rid of the narrow track axles on there or when they are looking for more suspension travel.
I've recently seen a freshly done CJ comp cut with a triangulated 3 link rear and coilovers. Looked real nice.
